Holden and Banky are comic book artists. Everything's going good for them until they meet Alyssa, also a comic book artist. Holden falls for her, but his hopes are crushed when he finds out she's a lesbian.
Banky says during the "oral sex scars" scene in the club that he can't move his head far to the right because of the Brandi Svenning's father. Brandi Svenning is T.S.'s girlfriend in Mallrats (1995). Her father is the main antagonist of that film.

When Holden and Alyssa are driving back with art work the speedometer does not move.
The director would like to thank... GOD - For all that's come before, all that'll come after, and most importantly, for right now. JOEY - For giving me something personal to say. I love you poopie. (First one who laughs gets decked!) SCOTT - Master of the Impossible, ying to my yang, heart of my heart... He's my cherry pie. BEN - Outstanding. Outstanding, this guy.

BOB HAWK - For being there from the start, teaching us what makes a movie great, and always doing the dishes. HARVEY - Who, like a good parent, gives us money, offers endless moral support, and spanks us when we need spanking (okay... everything but the spanking part). MIKE ALLRED - For fulfilling this fanboy's dream. See you in the funny papers. THE CAST AND CREW - Who worked for nothing, yet gave everything. MATT SEITZ - For the one review that made a difference. BRIAN MACKEWICH AND BAM - For the extra mile... and the hundred more that followed.
